The Kicks Band was founded in 1975 by Edward Christianson for musicians to enjoy music socializing, playing great big band literature and to improvise jazz. The band got together just for “KICKS”. Ed made it a priority to provide all band members’ opportunities to improvise and to feel musically satisfied.
Since 2014 the Kicks Band’s focus has shifted towards Jazz Arts Education and providing high-quality Jazz Arts Programs for our community. On March 28, 2018 we became a 501(c)3 organization with the specific purpose of jazz education and performance. Our mission is to educate, perform, communicate and preserve America’s original art form, Jazz.
